 from the subject of this bug it seems the issue has to do with building an
 official versioned release, not with a random svn snapshot build?

 In that case the svn rev and thus svnversion are mostly irrelevant;
 ".svn/" metadata is not in the final tarball, and if a historian is
 curious what svn rev the version refers to they can always look it up in
 the tag's log. For versioned releases it already has an official version
 number, so we know exactly which version of the codebase the user is
 talking about- the point of including svn revs is to provide that info for
 non-official-versioned checkouts.

 of course the packaging script should handle all the variable setting (or
 leaving blank) cleanly for you once you change the "Devel" keyword to
